Ring! Ring! Opera Mini 3 brings RSS to your cell!

Word on the street was right, Opera Mini was just updated to version 3 today and know we know what the new features are for this fantastic cell phone browser. The latest functionality additions include:

Rss_feedsRSS support: Opera Mini will show you an RSS icon if you browse to a page that offers a newsfeed. Selecting the feed subscribes you to the content and the browser will retrieve stories for you as they become available. Clicking an RSS newsfeed title will take you directly to the content webpage using Opera’s small-screen rendering format.

Photo Sharing: Using the camera in your handheld, you can now take pictures and use Opera Mini 3 to upload those photos to a blog or forum.

Content Folding: Navigation and long lists on websites will automatically be collapsed to save on screen space. These will appear as a "plus" sign to indicated there is collapsed content; to expand the list, simply select the "plus" icon for the fully extended list. If the list is longer than the vertical screen space, a scroll bar will appear to aid navigation.

The list continues but these were the functions that I think improve Opera Mini 3 by leaps and bounds over its already solid predecessor. Opera is bringing in features that were only available on smartphones and applying them to standard cellular handsets; all for free! Here’s a tour of the full feature set. If your cell supports Java (which a good many do), you owe it to yourself to check out Opera Mini 3.
